Last month, I had the pleasure of being a guest on Atlanta’s “Pride & Politics” to discuss marriage equality and homophobia in the black community. “Pride & Politics” is hosted by Atlanta based journalist Anare’ Holmes and is produced by People TV.

My friend and David Atlanta Editor Ryan Lee was also on the panel for a very thought provoking discussion on the state of LGBT rights as it relates to people of color.

Our appearance originally aired Tuesday, but the tech gods were on my side and I was able to save the file to post here for you guys. I look forward to your feedback. Enjoy.
